Design submission deadline is June 30
LAFCU is calling Michigan artists to apply for the chance to create an original artwork by painting one of the five giant LAFCU letters as part of the credit union’s Art, Growth & Community Series.
The LAFCU letters will travel to venues throughout mid-Michigan providing each artist with multiple opportunities to display their work to diverse audiences and the public. Each winning artist will also receive a $100 gift card.
“This competition is for artists who want to create something unique and have it displayed in a traveling art exhibit that will be viewed by thousands throughout the remainder of 2016,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU senior vice president of marketing.
In addition to the traveling LAFCU letters, each of which are six feet tall, the artwork will be displayed digitally on social media, the LAFCU website and in videos.
Artists must be able to provide their own tools, equipment and latex paint, and will be reimbursed for paint costs up to $100. Design submissions must be aligned with the LAFCU Art, Growth and Community Series.
The winning artists will each be assigned a LAFCU letter on paint day, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Wednesday, July 13.
Online design applications will be accepted from Monday, June 13, to Thursday, June 30. Competition guidelines and submission information are available at www.lafcu.com/art.
